In Salesforce1 app, on an Account record there is a Phone, Map, Website and Link icon on the Record Actions Bar. See below screenshot

I have a custom object for which I want to add a similar icon like Phone and Map. I tried looking in the developer guide and was not able to find any way to do it. Do you know if it is supported?


It's not currently possible to add extra options to that specific part of the UI. Try voting on this Idea if you want this to be available in the future.

You could try adding a Custom Button in which case a drop-down will appear next to your Edit and Delete buttons with any additional buttons you've added. Alternatively you can use a Publisher Action which will allow you to perform your action from the '+' icon in the bottom right corner on the record detail page.

The publisher actions feature lets you create actions and add them to the Chatter publisher on the home page, on the Chatter tab, in Chatter groups, and on record detail pages. You can also customize the order in which the standard Chatter actions appear, including Post, File, Link, and Poll.

  • do you know why certain publisher actions dont appear? Are there any settings apart from adding it to the page layout that needs to be done? – DCBoy Feb 19 '14 at 4:02
  • FYI - I have voted for the idea that you gave below, I think it will be very useful. – DCBoy Feb 19 '14 at 4:04

It is now possible to customize this action bar:
